Jayna Omaye’s lengthy article in Hawai’i Magazine captures the encore movement’s essence, and profiles several career transitions:

  • State AARP Director Barbara Kim Stanton’s past roles in community organizing, labor relations and government – plus her personal caregiving experiences – led her to take on this leadership role as her “7th job.”
  • Real estate professional Steve Tam also built on his caregiving experience to land new roles with AARP and the Alzheimer’s Association.
  • Educator Jan Youth felt called to become a minister and entered seminary at age 51.

The piece also spotlights local leaders Cullen Hayashida, eldercare programs advisor at St. Francis Hospital and project lead for a new Hawaiian Active Aging Resource Directory, and Carleen MacKay, a workforce and career expert.
